Performance: Capture Part 2

In “Performance Capture: Part 2”, open source motion capture sequences are mapped onto stock low-polygonal unsmoothed 3D characters. Bodies inflate, deflate and oscillate between states, while movements shift and repeat in offset patterns as information transfers from one body to the next. In the animation, what should be used to record, simulate and create perfect virtual realities instead collapses into the uncanny, the abstract and the unreal.

Your big face
Your Big Face is an interactive projection installation. Using a live camera feed, participants’ faces are projected onto the canvas of a giant polygonal 3D face. This combination of the organic and polygon raises questions about the digital representation of self, modern attention spans, and the narcissistic and voyeuristic qualities of modern culture. It is also just really fun.

GREGOR GAIDA

Polygonal Horse II

Gregor Gaida’s sculptures have something almost unreal, in them surrealism is powerful, there is transfiguration, symbol and narration; creates incredibly exciting sculptures in which even the elements: wood, resin and concrete mix without losing their contrasting nature. Its themes can be seen as three-dimensional snapshots, with fictional protagonists fighting and being advanced, extracted and distant from their original framework of action. In his sculptures, Gaida literally shapes this approach and stories without finishing them; many of his subjects are also physically cut in half, incomplete and, therefore, to be completed.
